Re: top five art videos for middle school

I wonder if this is the same series produced by PBS many years
ago--something like, American Indian Artists. My former HS had the
whole series, though I remember them being longer, nearly an hour (?).
Another good one in the series is on Helen Hardin. She grew up on the
rez, raised by an artist mother, but forged her own distinctive style.
I didn't care for the video on Charles Loloma, though I love his jewelry.
